Contemporary drama set in the "strife torn" Balkans.
Prestige offering from the Serb film industry fits right into the film festival mold.
The account of Balkan history they jam in (complete with caption on the genuine academic being interviewed) is the most interesting element with showing Izudin Bajrovic's failing luxury hotel, the camera snaking through it's corridors and spaces with concierge Vidovic, coming in second. The personal stories aren't bad but the everybody fails ending is a bit of a downer.
Vice to see Jacques Weber getting top billing. Muted greenish colour gets by.
